You can view the Kink On Tap community feed on the sidebar of the Kink On Tap website under the heading, "Community Links Feed." (Shown right.)

You can also subscribe to the community links feed in your feed reader of choice.

Adding to the feed Edit

To add a link you think is interesting to the Kink On Tap community links feed, you can do any of the following things. When you add a link, it will go to one of the included feeds, which then get merged together to create the communal feed.

Add via Twitter Edit

If you have a Twitter account, simply put the link you want to share in a tweet and make sure to add the hashtag #kinkontap. (Note that if you have a "protected" or "locked" Twitter account, your posts cannot be added to the feed. Consider creating a separate, unlocked account for this purpose.) Adding to the feed this may also earn you a top spot in the The #KinkOnTap Daily twitter newspaper.

Add via Delicious.com Edit

If you have a Delicious.com account, simply save a new bookmark and make sure you include a "KinkOnTap" tag.

Add via Google Reader Edit

If you use Google Reader and would like to use it to share links with Kink On Tap, create a new folder, share it publicly, grab the link to your feed (by viewing the public page and copying the Atom feed link) and then email kinkontap+links@gmail.com the link.

To add links to your shared folder, tag relevant, interesting posts using the name of the folder you created. One of the Kink On Tap Editors will examine your feed and if in our sole discretion it is deemed appropriate, will add it to the included feeds. From then on, items you add to your shared folder will be visible in the communal feed. Your name or email address will not appear in the communal feed.

Contribution étiquette Edit

The Kink On Tap community links feed is a shared resource. This means that in order to remain genuinely useful, contributors are expected to abide by a certain code of conduct. Failure to do so may result in your future contributions being blocked.

The following is an incomplete list of activities that are considered unacceptable use of the Kink On Tap community links feed:

  • Link stuffing: If you find a link worth sharing, add the link once and only once.
  • Link obfuscating: Use the full, canonical URL to the content you'd like to share. Do not use URL shortening services if you can avoid it. (When you share a link using Twitter, the link you add is the permalink to your tweet, so you may still use URL shortening services to tweet links you'd like to share.)
  • Spamming: Contribute on-topic material only. Adding links to unrelated content, which includes but is not limited to spam, unrelated advertisements, or other content is unacceptable.
  • Misdirection: Sharing content with text that is misrepresentative of the link target's content is considered a form of link obfuscating and is unacceptable.
